Cubans now have a path to MLB. Just like Japan, Cuba and MLB have agreed to a posting system. Cuban players that are at least 25 and have 6 years service can be posted to sign with an MLB team.

Another woman has came forward and accused Addison Russell of abuse. The new information says Russell's worst moment with his ex-GF was stalking her on a girls night. She said Russell jumped out of a taxi as she was walking with friends and after a brief chase he tackled her on the concrete and slammed her down. She says he repeatedly asked if she liked pushing his buttons. Russell's now ex-wife came forward earlier this year with her details of abuse. She said Russell even attacked her while pregnant.

Trevor Cahill to Angels for 1 year, $9M. Angels have now spent the $20M they budgeted for Corbin. $11M to Harvey and $9M to Cahill.

Two for the price of one...

 

Granted, it's lesser quality...

Nats sign Anibal Sanchez for 2 years $19M.

He deserves it. I understand why we didn't want to go two years on him, but he was lights out for us. I wish him well (as long as the Nats are 10+ games out).

Sanchez wound up with 3.0 WAR and a waaWL% of .578. That's a stunning performance for a guy we signed as a "depth piece".

Apparently Kemp & Puig are headed to CIN in the previously reported deal for Homer Bailey. Bailey, who is a 10-5 player has decided to waive his rights.

I'm calling it now, by the trade deadline Kemp will be back with the Dodgers.

Harper to Dodgers confirmed?

Dodgers OF still has Bellinger, Pederson, Verdugo, Toles, Hernandez and Taylor. Hernandez and Taylor are more super utility but can fill in. Verdugo is a top prospect ready for the show. Dodgers had too many OFs. It could happen but this isn't because it is happening.

I think this may make room for a Grandal re-signing.

It's amazing that the Dodgers can trade Wood, Puig, and Kemp for prospects and salary relief and basically not lose any value. Full seasons of Seager and Ryu and a promotion for Alex Verdugo should easily replace the value traded.

Kluber talks going strong but no deal is expected till after Christmas. You can probably expect nothing to happen the next few days as everyone breaks for the holidays.

Yep. This is the usual dead period where everyone takes a break for Christmas and the new year. Next big news will be in January.

With 25% of the vote known Andruw Jones has dropped below the mark to keep him on the ballot in the future. Long way to go though. 

As of right now Roy Halladay, Edgar Martinez, Mariano Rivera and Mike Mussina are on pace to get in.
